Composite Slate Roofing
AllPro Roofing offers a line of composite slate roofing products and services. If you’re looking for a strong, attractive roof on a budget, composite slate roofing is an excellent choice. Here are a few reasons why people love composite slate so much:
Composite slate roofs are far more cost effective than slate roofing – about 50% cheaper in fact. The composite slate installation process is also far less labour intensive. Real slate is heavy and difficult to install properly, meaning you’ll have to pay more to get the job done. Synthetic slate offers easier installation and a lower overall job cost.
Makes Your Roof Look Great
One of the reasons why people choose composite slate roofing is that the end product looks natural and attractive. You can get a slate look you love in a large array of colours. With so many options, you’ll have no problem matching you home’s style.
Composite slate roof tiles are significantly lighter than slate shingles/tiles. This means there’s less need for reinforcement, because the possibility of damage from material weight is very unlikely. Less reinforcement means a simpler installation, as light tiles do not require alterations on a standard roof. Composite slate roofing is far easier to install than natural slate, and comes in at 1/3 the weight, meaning less chance of structural damage.
Protection From Mold and Damage
Roof damage from moisture and mold can be very costly. Mold will make its way in from a roof to the inside of a home. This may create an unsafe environment for your family. Thankfully, composite slate roofs are chemically treated to resist algae and mold buildup. Composite slate products are also very durable. They will not be damaged by adults walking on them nor will they dent or break from hail or debris. Natural slate, on the other hand, can be a hazard as pieces can break and fall off.
When you purchase something big and expensive, you naturally expect a warranty. Rooftop shingles are no exception. Warranties for standard rooftop shingles are usually between 15 years to 20 years. The standard warranty for composite slate shingles is between 30 years and 50 years. If you want a roof that lasts a long time, composite slate tiles are a smart buy.
